Lifting and marine product specialist Rigmarine will sponsor Scottish Highland League club Huntly’s annual golf day, which takes place on Friday 25 August at Huntly Golf Club.


Club Chairman George Clark was delighted with the backing they’ve received. He said: “We are delighted that Rigmarine have agreed to become the main sponsor for our golf day and am looking forward to another excellent day. In addition to their generous support, I and K motors of Inverurie are sponsoring our hole in one charity challenge where a successful hole in one will win a car. We also have a very welcome well stocked half way bar sponsored by Huntly Motors so I’m sure all our competitors will enjoy another memorable day”

Rigmarine opened its fourth global facility in the rural village of Insch, 30 miles to the northwest of Aberdeen last year, only a short drive from Huntly’s Christie Park ground. The site is strategically positioned to serve the offshore oil and gas, renewables, construction, break bulk, shipping and marine industries.

Rigmarine has close commercial and community connections with its local football team and regularly supports matches and fundraising events. Brendan Murison, operations manager, Rigmarine Europe Ltd., said: “We have strong ties with Huntly and welcome opportunities to raise the profile of our business, which is newly established in the area, whilst supporting a club that means a lot to our employees and other people in the region.”

Huntly’s squad includes Brendan’s son, 19-year-old Glenn Murison, who is also a Rigmarine employee; the midfielder has recently started his third season with the team. They currently sit in seventh place in the Press & Journal Highland League after four games, having won their last two outings following defeat on the opening day.

Brendan said: “The team is looking to improve on last season’s 14th-place finish and we look forward to supporting them in their endeavours. Huntly is my local team and that of Mike Duncan, who alongside Alex Cobban (another local figure) are the founders of Rigmarine group, so we are passionate about helping them, achieve their goals on and off the pitch.”

He added: “It takes a lot of work and finances to run a successful campaign in the Scottish Highland League when you consider the players’ wages, upkeep of the ground, facilities and equipment, etc. The golf day is just one of numerous fundraising events that we will look to support throughout the season, which hopefully form a backdrop to a great year on the pitch.”

The annual golf day will start with soup and sandwiches before participants take to the course in a shotgun format, where all groups of players will tee off simultaneously from different holes. Brendan, who regularly plays, will be among golfers representing the Rigmarine team. There is a chance to win a car on the day and performance-based prizes will be available before the event concludes with a celebratory dinner and prize giving.

On business, Brendan said: “Since opening halfway through last year, we have welcomed steady business and have supplied a variety of lifting, rigging and mooring equipment, and related services, to the local and international offshore oil and gas market in particular. We have grown the team to 12 employees and as the sector continues to re-energise, we are excited about prospects for the future.”

Rigmarine’s technical and commercial expertise in the market, backed by key suppliers and excellent service, has helped the company secure ongoing work. The success of recent contracts has allowed Rigmarine to continue to be a main supplier for Technip France, which utilises rigging and mooring equipment for the Kaombo project in Angola, while a long-term contract for the supply and installation of mooring wires and equipment for six new-build vessels for Maersk also remains ongoing.
